ABOUT THE COURSE

Shalford Park is a beautiful riverside park on the outskirts of Guildford, running along the River Wey. It can be easily reached from Woking, Farnborough, Farnham, Leatherhead, Aldershot and Weybridge.

With a mixture of open grassland and riverside this beautiful park is the perfect place for a diverse range of edible wild Spring foods to flourish.

The course starts with a short introduction on what to look for and a brief of the general countryside codes, where they relate to foragers.

Then we’ll set off on a roughly 2.5 hour walk around the park, teaching you how to identify the different Spring shoots, plants, flowers and hopefully mushrooms that we find.

There will be a break along the way for some homemade refreshments such as our lovely hogweed and wild garlic soup.

After the walk we will end the day with a tasty wild food lunch based on what we have found. This will include some treats made from our recent finds, a wild salad that we will pick on the day and possibly even some wild garlic pesto.

After the course we will email you a list of everything we talk about on the day; to help you remember what you have learnt.
